Nope, we're not free from the snow and ice yet. So why am I so excited?

New episodes of tv tonight! So tired of holiday specials, sports events, and reruns. It's a good ending for an otherwise non-eventful (boring) day.

and now I leave you with today's photo 

can you see my little cardinal buddy?

Just in case you don't know where to focus, here's a close up      :

Isn't he pretty?

I felt really bad because there were a ton of birds out searching for food. I wished I had bought some bird feed but don't normally do that because of the cats.
Doesn't she look like she'd love a little bird-stew?

So being the compassionate animal/fowl lover that I am, and on the advise of a facebook friend, I crushed some crackers and threw them out on the snow. And sat and watched.

and watched.

and watched.

I did not see one bird accept my offering. Fine! Starve to death! Just don't let me come outside and find 1000 dead birds in my backyard. I don't want to make the 6 o'clock news.


  1. LOL! I feel bad about not having birdseed, either. I will be prepared next time! Of course, if I am prepared, then there probably won't BE a next time! ;-)

  2. Trying again to see if your 'fix' to comments worked... Have enjoyed reading your posts... didn't know this side of you.... Louise
